    Oh, so you're a freelance writer? Let's remember that a career is different from a job .

    Well, unless I'm missing the social differences between European and North American (which is possible!), I see this as a SJ viewing life through their "settle down and do this"/ stability vs the "Student finding their way/trying for a dream"/flightyness.

    Don't worry, not jumping into a... career... is very Nish.

    I consider a job and career two different things.
    "You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."

    Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office

    I thought hotmale was uptalking my unemployed status...?

    In my country, people downtalk everything and you have to drag their achievements out of them. Not only is the negative spin a downer, it's also based on false modesty :rolli:, so I much prefer the positive (/American) approach. Even if it does lead to converse problems of having to deflate euphemisms like 'between careers' into 'unemployed' at least you actually get to be honestly proud of and to celebrate your achievements.

    Oh, I thought he was alluding that writing (freelance, anyway) is not a "career" but a "job" (and an unsteady flighty one at that!).

    Heh, ok, I see your view now. I hate the American way though I'm far more euro than amer that way. Although I did enjoy getting my dad to shut up about "finding a real job" after he asked how much I earned. *shrug* I guess it does work.

    To be crude, whenever I do that, it feels like I've whipped out... something... from my pants and smacked it down on the table... "And how big are you?". Bleh.
